Subject: wish there were more eps of this show!
This show features fast-paced word play + fun! A contestant, partnered with a celebrity, has to guess the names of people, places, things, or even phrases in as few letters as possible. Only 3 letters can be put on the board to view at first; as time elapses, more letters must be added until either time runs out or the answer is guessed.

In this ep, the "home team" features celebs Stubby Kaye and Dick Patterson. The contestant here is paired with singer Gisele MacKenzie. All prove to be smart and funny, providing an exciting program.

Rumor has it this is the sole surviving episode of PDQ, a classic game show from the 1960s. This is the pilot episode so changes were probably made. It would be so wonderful to uncover more episodes, if they're out there.

Like Prince Vegeta, I was a murderer, until I myself was murdered. While Prince Vegeta got to join the living world by accident, I'm stuck down here in hell. Frankly, there isn't much to do here, so instead I use the Internet to view all these wonderful old programs.

I had forgotten all about this show. Dennis James really gets annoyed at times. "KEEP THOSE LETTERS TOGETHER!" "SAY IT! COME ON, PHONETICALLY!" And I thought Dick was going to pass out. He was really sweating in that booth.
Thanks for uploading this!

Subject: Great Show
This was great, it's still a great concept for a game show and should still be on the air. Dennis James wasn't quite the host he was on "Okay Mother" upload more if you have them
